No defeat could undo the positives Bishop LeBlond forged to start the season. Nothing the Golden Eagles did in winning the first three weeks could prepare them for Class 3 No. 2 Maryville.

The Spoofhounds dominated LeBlond 56-7 in a battle of unbeatens at Eagle Stadium, ending LeBlond’s best run to start a season in more than a decade. Playing the most important game in that span, LeBlond ended up just another victim unable to stay close to the juggernaut


Maryville improved to 4-0, 2-0 in the Midland Empire Conference, one of only two unbeatens left in the league after toppling the Eagles.

“We couldn’t even get in their way,” LeBlond coach Tony Dudik said. “It is a game; it wasn’t the Super Bowl. It was a test. It was an opportunity, and we had our opportunity tonight and they were by far, by far. The much better team.”

Maryville needed only seven plays and less than 2 minutes to put LeBlond behind for the first time this season.

The Spoofhounds worked with ruthless efficiency starting from the opening kickoff. They ran it seven straight times, capped with Derek Stiens’ 4-yard touchdown run on the opening drive to go ahead 7-0.
